In food news: If you‚Äôre wondering about my one-skillet, 30-minute-dinner game plan, like you‚Äôre curious if I just open up my fridge, pull out a bunch of ¬†ingredients and throw them in the pan, you‚Äôd be right! Buuuuut, this wasn’t one of those times.

THIS recipe for skillet cheese stuffed peppers is actually one that my Baba (grandma) used to make for me right around the end of summer, and right before her banana/cubanelle/anaheim peppers turned red. She had all pepper-varieties¬†growing in her garden. Matter of fact, Macedonians have huuuuuge gardens and 3/4 of their garden is always peppers because, Ajvar. ’nuff said.

Of course, Baba Z also made her own urda (ricotta) AND feta cheese, and spices, and clay pots… and tobacco!… and soap! She made everything herself. Impressive, eh? If she was alive today, she’d be bankin’ it on Etsy.

Her cooking though was da bomb, including these stove top skillet stuffed peppers.

While you can probably make these with your eyes closed, allow me to break it down for ya.

Get about 8¬†banana or cubanelle peppers. Cut the tops off and clean out the seeds. In a bowl, throw together a tub of ricotta, some¬†grated parmesan¬†cheese, green onions, garlic, etc… mix it up, stuff it into the peppers, transfer it all to a hot skillet, turn them peppers¬†over a couple of times, bada bing bada boom, done!

Annnnnd the only thing that I can think of that will make these skillet cheese stuffed peppers better is adding a BIG leafy salad to go with it all. Or a big sirloin steak. Your choice, always.

ENJOY!
